New Poem: My sister is a comet


My sister is a comet. 
She passes through my atmosphere about once a year 
Many times I don’t grab my telescope fast enough
To catch a glimpse of her
I can barely make her out
Her faint tail so unspectacular

But every once in a while
When the sun shines on her just right
And her orbit is close enough
She beams miraculous
Visible to the naked eye
A brilliant display
Tickling the sky with butterfly kisses
Luminous and quick as a birthday candle
So I try not to take her for granted

Sometimes it is only her orbit
That floats by me
But even then
She’s been known to leave spectacular meteor showers
In her wake

I used to pine for her
Like a lost favorite thing
Retrace my steps
Searching for her all over my earth
Wanted to take her home
Like a hardened starfish
Place her on my shelf
I used to want her
To become a moon
Loyal and dull
Frozen in her monotonous spinning
But with me
In all my nights

But I was taught by a little prince
Who fell from an asteroid,
“On ne voit bien
qu’avec le coeur. 
L’essentiel
est invisible
pour les yeux.”
One sees clearly
Only with the heart.
What is essential
Is invisible to the eye. 

How could I deny
Her glamorous performances
To the other solar systems
Whose auspicious orbits
Float past her trail?

All shimmering illumination
And dazzling sequins
Radiant and flaming
She kisses moons
Glitters through the heavens
Her vapors revive thirsty planets
She lends new fuel to choking suns
Skies breathe deep, taking her in
Wishing like me
That she could stay

So now I can tell them
What that same little prince taught me
That when you miss someone’s laugh,
Someone whose home is in outer space
Then you should only look to the sky
And you will see all the stars laughing

Her hidden charm
Is that she leaves herself
Inside of you
No matter how long she’s gone
Celestial radiance igniting graceful simple
Stardust
And her memory
Of moments
Never long enough

"We live not according to reason, but according to fashion." -Seneca


"Fashion is as profound and critical a part of the social life of man as sex, and is made up of the same ambivalent mixture of irresistible urges and inevitable taboos." -Rene Konig


"I dress for the image.  Not for myself, not for the public, not for fashion, not for men." -Marlene Dietrich


"Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions." -Coco Chanel


"Fashion is so close in revealing a person's inner feelings and everybody seems to hate to lay claim to vanity, so people tend to push it away.  It's really too close to the quick of the soul." -Stella Blum


"To let the spiritual, unbidden, and unconscious grow up through the common - this is my symphony." -William Ellery Channing


"Fashion is only the attempt to realize art in living forms and social intercourse." - Sir Francis Bacon


"Beauty of style and harmony and grace and good rhythm depend on simplicity." -Plato

New Poem: The Mermaid


       They found her on the northern coast of Japan after the tsunami.  She was a tiny slumped flower clinging to the edge of a rooftop in a strange river of floating cars and debris.  They brought her to the Monterey Bay Aquarium in a 3ft x 6ft tank in the back of a trailer.  Her fishtail curled toward her tangled black locks like a bandage.  It was weeks before the doctors were confident to release her for the exhibit.  But she was exquisite. 
       Her eyes were deep green and tender and she had spongy ocean lips.  Her onyx black hair floated in a magnetic dance swirling around her perfect cantaloupe breasts, savory crescent moon hips, and a moss-colored tail curled in a constant pendulum sway.  She moved in graceful elegance, every gesture a floating dance. 
       They announced her to the world.  The Mermaid!  Come one, come all! 
       She was the porcelain doll they placed on their shelf.  Swarms of humans came to gape starving through the looking glass, longing to hook their fingers around her delicate wrists and tidal siren bottom like a child’s wriggling salamander prize.  But, as they lusted for her, she thirsted for the ocean: the taste of fresh algae, the tickle of a seahorse’s kiss, the beautiful symphony of electric eel lightning storms, the dance of sun rays reflected through water, and the majesty of a sea turtle landing on a cavern floor.  She only wanted one more night lying next to her husband in their soft seaweed bed or one more day chasing bubbles to the surface with her sisters. 
       Her sway became mechanical like a grandmother clock, her gaze frozen like a quartz crystal cracked down its center.  She sought refuge from the stinging stares of voyeurs in the dim shadowed corner of the tank.  She began to swim in circles hiding behind its veil.  The congregation roared, banged on the glass, “How dare you keep yourself from us!”  She could feel her smooth black locks turn to jellyfish tentacles under their ravenous stares.  She was Medusa, pining for Poseidon as their jealous salted curse turned her perfect beauty monstrous.   
       She refused to eat and it was not long before she was found floating face down on the surface of her tank.  They quickly preserved her in a marinade of hardened plastic, carefully leaned to one side, one tiny arm bent toward her perfect face, the other resting over her waist, delicate fingertips grazing her navel, and her fishtail curled gracefully into the air, pointing toward the stone expression in her empty emerald eyes. 
       Now it’s an anthill funeral procession of gawking passersby and one mannequin mermaid, lying ceremonious in a trumpeting glass casket in a travelling museum exhibit announcing her to the world.  The Mermaid! Come one, come all!!

COMMIT. (Tim O'Meara Photography)

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." -W.H. Murray 


"Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows. There is no code of conduct to help beginners. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent." -Sophia Loren
